Starbreeze includes job offers in pirated versions of Syndicate

If you can’t lick ‘em… hire ‘em?

As is pretty much standard procedure these days, last week’s Syndicate retail launch was accompanied by a simultaneous torrent launch so people who prefer to take things without paying for them can get to play the game too.

And it being pretty much standard procedure, developer Starbreeze decided to take advantage of that, and extend a bit of, well, vocational advice to those people. An opportunity to really turn their lives around, that sort of thing.

Pirates discovered a document included in the game’s files with remarkably simple instructions to crack it (“1. Insert disc, 2. Play”), followed by this text:

Are you bored with watching from the sidelines? Ready to make the switch? Do you have considerable talents in any of the following areas? Art, modelling, texturing, sound design. Programming. Game design?

If you meet one or more of those criteria, and want to be a part of the fun, email us at jobs@starbreeze.com today!

Okay, it’s not exactly the most conventional way to recruit potential employees, but it’s probably better than pissing off those people who bought the game by attaching DRM to it. So that’s nice.
